Von Hippel-Lindau Syndrome VHL syndrome is inherited in an autosomal dominant manner. Approximately 80% of individuals with VHL syndrome have an affected parent and about 20% have VHL syndrome as the result of a <i>de novo</i> pathogenic variant. Parental mosaicism has been described; the incidence is not known The autosomal dominantly inherited disorder von Hippel-Lindau disease (VHL) is caused by germline mutations in the VHL tumour suppressor gene (TSG). VHL mutations predispose to the development of a variety of tumours (most commonly retinal and central nervous system haemangioblastomas, clear cell renal carcinoma and phaeochromocytomas) Von Hippel-Lindau (VHL) disease is a hereditary cancer syndrome characterized by the development of multiple vascular tumours.

Haemangioblastomas in the central nervous system (CNS) and retina, renal carcinoma and pheochromocytomas are the most common tumours. The absence of treatment for VHL leads to the need of repeated surgeries as the only option for these. Background Historically, the survival of patients with von Hippel-Lindau disease (vHL) has been poorer than that of the general population. We aimed to determine whether the survival of VHL mutation carriers and their risk of vHL-related death has changed over time and how it has been affected by sex, genotype and surveillance attendance von Hippel Lindau disease is a genetic condition that runs in families.

VHL is an autosomal dominant disorder, but there is a wide variation in the age of onset of the disease, the organ system affected and the severity of effect. Most people with von Hippel-Lindau syndrome inherit an altered copy of the gene from one parent. In about 20 percent of cases, however, the altered gene is the result of a new mutation that occurred during the formation of reproductive. Von Hippel-Lindau disease (VHL)-associated tumors conform to Knudson's two-hit hypothesis,[2,3] in which the clonal origin, or the first transformed cell of the tumor, occurs only after both VHLalleles are inactivated in a cell. The inherited germline pathogenic variant in VHL represents the first hit, which is present in every cell in the.
